A Comprehensive Policy, International in Scope
"We established the Qatar National Food Security Programme in 2008, which aims to reduce Qatar’s reliance on food imports through the realisation of the principle of self-sufficiency. The programme will not only develop the recommendations for Food Security policy, but will also join regional and international organisations and non-governmental organisations to develop research and studies for best practices and optimal use of resources in the agricultural sector."
HH the Father Emir of the State of Qatar, Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa Al-Thani, FAO Headquarters, 16 November 2009.
